Evans Opoku, the Assembly Member for the Abuakwa-Manhyia Electoral Area, recounted the events, stating, “It was intentional, he was trying to burn the house and he wanted to kill his grandmother but the grandmother rushed to the police station to report the guy that the guy has threatened to kill her. So, what he was doing was to burn the house and the grandmother too. Not knowing that the grandmother had left. So, before they realized someone was burnt it was the guy’s mother.”

This tragic event underscores the importance of addressing mental health issues and providing support to individuals and families affected by such challenges.
